Ventura Primer Nats Sept 5 2009


Saturday was my husbands birthday so we decided to do something fun for the day, we decided on Ventura Primer Nationals about 2 hrs drive from the house, just jump on the freeway and we will be there…….Wrong, I guess everyone else decided to get of town too!! It took us 3 hrs and some but well worth it!!  


It was lots of people and ton of neat cars and bikes at the show. The Fairground is just next to the ocean, so the temp was just perfect in the low 70s much, much better then the 90-100s we have had lately at the house.


Cool Gaser!!


The Music was great!


Sweet Panhead! (minus the front fender)


Nothing wrong here…….


or here!!!


No show without some Corndogs ;0) 


Several very talented Pin Stripers showed off their stuff…….


Been there done that!!!


Would not mind at all to have this one!


Nice view!!!


Talk about loooow!!!


Took at nice walk on the beach before it was time to go……..


Could not believe the speed the surfer got up…….


After all that we had worked up a hunger and went to this whole in the wall restaurant we always go to while in Ventura, the service is slow and the place is not fancy in any way but their hamburgers are to die for!! I went for the “healthier” cob salad, I tell you its nothing healthy about it but it taste delicious!!!


Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!!!

What fun! You took some wonderful pictures and it almost made me feel like I was there. Loved the green car, too. Now I can see myself in it with my hair whipping in the wind as I am racing down the highway...Ahhh, maybe I will just slow down and settle for that hamburger and fries!

Looks like a great day and you got some wonderful photos. I love the look of the old cars. We saw a kite surfer a few weeks ago. He was jumping up and doing flips. It was really cool.

Looks like you had a wonderful day! Glad the weather was so perfect for your DH's birthday. For this wannabe beachbum, the walk at the water's edge is where I would have spent my day!

Jo, dessa bilköer.....
Men vad häftigt, så coolt!
Jag har aldrig ätit corndog, frågade maken och det har inte han heller, hur smakar det?
Ni verkar ju ha haft en super dag!
vi var på ett äventyrsland och hade jättekul.
Matilda kommer sova gott i natt.
Ha det gott!
Kram Bodil.
